Who is suitable for this procedure?
The most ideal candidate is someone who has a high and broad forehead and is looking to improve their forehead shape and facial proportions. Having good scalp skin elasticity will allow for adequate movement of the hair-bearing scalp to achieve the desired results. Furthermore, adequate volume and density of hair will improve the overall results.
It will also help reduce the appearance of a widow’s peak.
People who are starting to have a receding hairline from male- or female-pattern baldness are not good candidates as the hairline will continue to recede over time.
What care is required following surgery?
You will be provided with sufficient analgesia and other necessary medications following the surgery. There will be a clinic review one week after surgery for removal of sutures.
You are advised not to wash your hair for the first week until the sutures are removed.
During the initial 2 weeks, it would be advisable to sleep with your head elevated with several pillows to aid with reduction of swelling and bruising.
We will also teach you how to keep the wound clean and to look out for potential infection.
You should avoid hair treatment, perming or dyeing your hair for one month after the surgery.
